This multi-day hike is the opportunity to explore endless rolling sand dunes, and investigate the desert on foot.  The Wahiba Sands are one of the most spectacular experiences Oman has to offer.

Discovering the desert can be challenging and exhausting, but it can also be easy and fun. The 100 km Oman Desert Marathon Hiking Experience, is a chance to spend time in nature, be part of the adrenaline rush and physical challenge that all participants of Oman Desert Marathon get, no matter the distance. If you’re planning on hiking, BE PREPARED!

Hiking in the Omani desert is very different from hiking on mountain trails or other deserts, in the desert there are no trails and it is mostly soft sand. Though it is very safe to hike in the desert and you will not have problems navigating it, you should not underestimate it!

Like the 165 km runners, you will start from from the Oasis of Alwasil and finishing at Al Jawharat Resort in Bediyah and cover 5 stages, with the difference that you will cover approximately 20 km per day.

Are you ready for the big adventure? this long distance hike is possible for beginners, a multi-day desert hike, supported from the moment you arrive till the dat you go!
